How can I disable automatic database backups PME creates by default?

Published date: 29 June 2020

Issue
A user would like to disable the automatic DB backups that PME creates upon installation. 

Product Line
Power Monitoring Expert 2020
Power Monitoring Expert 9.x
Power Monitoring Expert 8.x

Environment
SQL DB backups

Cause
After PME has been installed it automatically creates windows jobs to take backups of its databases. 

Resolution
If a user would like to disable the automatic DB backups created by the PME installtion file, this can be done in the Windows Task Scheduler. Once you open the task scheduler you will navigate to Task Scheduler Library --> Schneider Electric --> Power Monitoring Expert. Once there you can simply right click on the task that you would like to disable and select "disable". This will prevent DB backups from being taking on the server. Note this should only be done if the user is taking DB backups on their own without the use of the task scheduler. The screenshot below shows the Task Scheduler and what it should look like after you are done.
